I don't think there is just one right now. There are a handful that are super though. My favorites:
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
BJ PennJiu-Jitsu - like chess, except you get to choke people.

thanks for the response.
Randy Couture is a good fighter. I know he is a world class wrestler.
i wonder what other kind training he has taken on since entering the mmas.
I t weould be interesting to find out how much work he has done in these other styles.rick gragg

In my opinion, Wanderlei Silva is the best MMA fighter in the world, right now. His record is probably the most impressive around (25-3-1) and he hasn't had a loss in over four years. He really seems to be unbeatable at the moment; but we all know how quickly that can change. Cro Cop was high on everybody's list for a long while, but look what happened...
As for Randy Couture, obviously, he is a phenomenal wrestler, and ground and pound has been one of his primary weapons. However, I've heard that he's been doing some really serious boxing training for awhile, now. In fact, if you look at his major fights last year, he really beat both Chuck and Tito standing up. Truly an inspirational fighter. Randy is the man. Can't wait for a rematch with Belfort.-Michael Luebbers

He will be killed, all right, but he can't know whether he is killed because of the knowledge which he has got or because of the knowledge which he hasn't got and which if he had it, would save him."

the problem with Silva is he tends to fight tommato cans although he is my favorite fighter. The other problem is the set of rules differ between organizations. But I would have to agree with Cliffs list with the addition of Matt Hughs.

I'd go with Fedor, he seems the toughest to beat right now.Skye Clements-Grimshaw

Randy is my favorite. Anyone who can do all that in his 40s impresses the heck out of me.I realize you think you understand what you thought I said, but what I am not so sure about is whether what you think you heard is what I think I meant.
